It seems a pity that E A L Lewis in his work Legal ethics (I ed) should, under the heading: ""Contingent fees entirely unprofessional"" did not, instead of simply referring to a few cases decided between 1920 and 1927, examine the basis of the prohibition and consider whether the contingent fee contractis is not perhaps a sound one. After all, it appears to function effectively in the United States of America and there are moves afoot for its introduction in the United Kingdom.
